Carrier- and cloud-neutral data center provider Digital Realty, has finally opened its third data center in Singapore, a 5-story facility known as Digital Loyang II or SIN12.

This 50MW facility was powered-on in April 2020, and marks Digital Realty’s largest data center in Singapore which will bring the company’s total committed investment to date in Singapore to over US$1 billion.

“The opening of our third data center is a major milestone on our PlatformDIGITAL® roadmap and underscores our long-term commitment to support the country’s digital economy.  The transition to the digital economy has impacted the way companies across all industries create and deliver value,” said A. William Stein, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Realty.

“There’s a growing need for a combination of open interconnection and next-generation colocation that will reduce the complexity of digital transformation.  Expanding our footprint in Singapore will enable us to better help our customers enhance their digital transformation efforts and scale their digital business models regionally as well as globally.”

Digital Loyang II is sited adjacent to Digital Loyang I, or SIN11 and are connected via diverse fiber routes, enabling customers in both facilities to connect directly via dark fiber cross-connects and access a connected data community of network and service providers on Digital Realty’s global platform.

“We’re proud that our new facility will help customers meet their digital and sustainability goals, with energy-efficient design and operational features.  We’re encouraged by the recently unveiled Singapore Green Plan 2030 and the new edition of the Green Building Masterplan.  Sustainable growth will be critical for the country to remain competitive as a leading global data center hub,” said Mark Smith, Managing Director, Asia Pacific for Digital Realty.

The Digital Loyang campus is located in close proximity to the Changi north cable landing station and about 25km from Singapore’s central business district. The campus also houses Digital Jurong (SIN10) which is as well interconnected with SIN11 and SIN12.
